Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Facial Products Review

Hello everyone, today my sister Amanda has done a guest post on the Yes to Tomatoes skin care line. She is also very interested in the beauty industry and has tried numerous skin care products. I hope you enjoy this post and find it helpful.

The Yes to Tomatoes line contains products that are clinically proven to help treat acne-prone or combination skin. I have tested these four products over an eight month period and I find that they do an excellent job of cleansing my skin, fighting acne and controlling breakouts. I love that they are mostly natural, which is hard to find in most acne treatment products. There are also other products available in this line. Below is my detailed review of each of the specific products, followed by some general information. 

Daily Pore Scrub

What It Has: Bisabolol, Ginger Lycopene and Salicylic Acid (97% Ntaural; Petroleum, SLS & Paraben free; Certified Oragnic)
What It Does: Exfoliates using mango and bamboo. Also contains Salicylic Acid to fight Acne and unclog pores.
Pros: Works great to help control breakouts and to brighten skin. Would be best suited for people with sensitive skin.
Cons: I would like to see more grit in the product as an exfoliant and I did not care too much for the smell.

Acne Control Gel Cleanser
What It Has: Lycopene and Salicylic Acid (95% Natural; Phthalaes a& SLS free; Certified Organic)
What It Does: Cleanses dirt and makeup from skin while fighting acne and blemishes.
Pros: Does a great job of cleansing my face and preventing my skin from becoming oily during the day
Cons: It can feel like there are remnants of the product left behind on your face - you only need to use a little bit.

Repairing Acne Lotion
What It Has: Salicyclic Acid and Lycopene (97% Ntaural; Petroleum, SLS & Paraben free)
What It Does: Clears up blemishes and minimizes pores by applying the lotion all over your face.
Pros: This is by far my favorite product in this line. Every time I see it I always see a noticeable difference in the morning. It really does clear up you skin and it works quickly! It is also oil free.
Cons: It is more of a serum than a lotion and a tad too thin and sticky. 

Roller Ball Spot Stick 
What It Has: Bisabolol, Ginger Lycopene and Salicylic Acid (97% Ntaural; Petroleum, SLS & Paraben free; Certified Organic)
What It Does: Allows you to spot treat breakouts by dabbing the product directly onto problem areas. 
Pros: Does a good job of soothing skin and combating inflammation due to the Ginger and Bisabolol. I usually notice that redness is reduced in the morning after applying this before I go to bed and that zits are reduced.
Cons: I find that it is very difficult to get the roller ball to work properly and to get enough product onto my skin. I would prefer if this product came in a different form of application.

  1. Oh really nice that products is the first time than I heard about that brand!
    Now ´m following you in Bloglovin´and GFC I hope your follow me back in both!

  2. Your sis did a great job! These products interest me, but how strongly do they smell of tomato? I think that would be a big factor determining whether or not I try them out.

    1. They smell nothing like tomato but they may not be great for very sensitive skin.

  3. I love the thought of the roller ball! sounds like an easy way to apply skincare (:

  4. I've been wanting to try this line out forever. Great review.

    New follower here from Bright Side Beauty blog hop. Would love for you to check out my blog.

  5. Is this okay to use during Dermatitis problems? I really believe Tomato ( Aar, except the smell) but I'm currently having little bit of Perioral dermatitis.

  6. I've been wanting to try out their products, and was looking at the rollerball. Nice to know that it works well, but glad I know that the application of it is funky!

  7. Hi there!
